Burna Boy’s concert in South Africa reportedly cancelled due to anger towards singer
Award-winning Nigerian singer Burna Boy has reportedly been withdrawn from the concert he was set to headline in South Africa. The singer was withdrawn due to the rising anger towards him in the country. Some months back, people from other African countries based in South Africa were attacked by South Africans. Due to the xenophobic attacks, Burna Boy had vowed never to set foot in South Africa. Amidst the anger and hate, the singer had been involved in a war of words with South African rapper AKA which led to anger towards him from some citizens of the country.
It was gathered that this was what made the organisers of the Africans Unite concert to cancel. The concert was set to hold on Saturday, November 23, and Sunday, November 24. The concert was cancelled and Burna Boy was withdrawn from it. Provisions have been made for fans who already bought tickets to be refunded.
In a statement released, it said that Africans Unite will continue to drive meaningful engagements with the expectation to bring all Africans together as one.
